“I’sss Married NOW!”

wedding collageYes.. you read that right, I’m now Mrs. Proctor!

I’ve been MIA for the past two months and this is the reason why. I’ve been planning my butt off to get married to the man of my dreams and it’s now time to share it with all of my virtual world… And unlike most weddings, we did NOT break the bank! Hope you enjoy!

(*Please note all photos are from friends who’ve captured via cell phone… professional wedding photography will not be received until next week.)

To say we didn’t run into any road blocks would be untrue. Our original location was another historic home where we planned to have a huge outdoor wedding along with outdoor dancing, bbq and yard games but due to the weather report showcasing thunderstorms and 90% chance of rain 4 days before the date, we had to quickly switch venues! God was smiling on us to have a home around the corner be available without charging an additional fee.

With that, I had to quickly change out from the original plans. I had to find a venue that would allow me to hold my wedding in doors but still allow something to go on outside under a covering. Well, Rose Hill matched all the criteria!

Below are photos of the original home: The Pompeiian Villa and although we were sadden to not be able to use this place, we are grateful for the Rose Hill Manor venue! The day must go on!!

I was so happy to have Rose Hill Manor be available as the wrap around porch was 12ft deep and covered which would allow me to host my reception on the porch and not get rained on. We are happy to report that although it did rain, the rain lasted for maybe 35 minutes and was light showers versus the thunderstorms it reported to be.

My nieces, Aileena and Alani offered an original blessing. Aileena which is 11yrs old read a poem that described Ronald and I’s story. Alani who is 13yrs sung “At Last” by Etta James!

Here is the original poem written by me but performed by my niece:

155 days ago they met

He called hisself trying to

Seduce her into his world

But if you know my nanny…

She was NOT trying to hear that!

She shot him down every time he spoke

But he never gave up and

Three days later, her heart he took

From not wanting to be bothered

To now the ocean not being able to live without his moon

It was inevitable that this day was to come soon

God knew it was necessary for these two to meet

Now on this day

Two become one and their lives with HIM will now be complete

With love in the air and flowers at full bloom

Please stand as the bride comes to meet her groom

My brother walked me down the aisle. I love this photo a friend captured as you can see my brothers eyes on me and all the guests looking at my groom to see his reaction. Completely beautiful!

And I can’t be anymore joyful about my Tadashi Shoji dress rented from Vow To Be Chic!

We created a newspaper online and printed 80 copies for our guests to read our story as they waited. Here is a copy:

One of my favorite pics is the one below of me, my sister and granny. My sister made this marvelous Naked Cake with fruit just like I requested and it was scrumptious!

  1. Kisha, your pics are beautiful. I forgot about the homes we have here as I’m starting to plan my wedding. Congrats and many blessings to you and your husband.

    • Thanks Debra!
      Yes… With my granny not being able to travel, we had to bring the wedding to her. Rose Hill was a great option.
      My original choice The Pompeiian Villa is AMAZING but you can only host outdoors in the courtyard. If you are planning an outdoor wedding, I would definitely suggest there. Also, check out Beau Reve in groves. I loved that place as well but for last minute resort, it was not coat efficient.

      Let me know if you need any assistance. Congrats to you too. It will be great!
      Kisha
